Health ser­vices re­search

The Press and Journal (Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire) - - NEWS - BY KIRSTEN ROBERT­SON

Ground­break­ing health­care re­search car­ried out in the Grampian re­gion dur­ing the last year was show­cased at an event this week.

At Aberdeen Univer­sity’s Forester­hill cam­pus NHS staff, re­searchers, pa­tients and mem­bers of the pub­lic came to­gether to cel­e­brate re­search at a sym­po­sium day on Tues­day.

The fo­cus was pub­lic aware­ness and in­volve­ment in clin­i­cal re­search.

Dr Katie Ban­is­ter, who co-or­di­nates pa­tient and pub­lic in­volve­ment and en- gage­ment for the Health Ser­vices Re­search Unit at the univer­sity, said: “A high­light of the day was hear­ing di­rectly from the pub­lic who work with us on de­vel­op­ing and im­prov­ing health ser­vices re­search and what a dif­fer­ence they have made by be­ing in­volved in re­search teams.”
